Overview

Edoardo Dionea Cicconi is an Italian contemporary artist working with installations, sculptures, sound and other media. Addressing universal themes often in an interactive way, he tries to find a synthesis between art & science, investigating the concept and perception of “time”. His artworks freeze a subjective dimension in time and become the vehicle of a profound, universal message.

 

‘Time and Space (and spacetime) intrigue me a lot as universal themes … It is impossible to reflect on something without taking time and space into consideration because it would be something non-existent, without reason.’



His ‘kinetic mirrors’ explore these concepts. While appearing to be simple metal mirrors, these installations interact with their  environment; sometimes reflecting space and at other times warping it. Like a black hole, the mirrors create a sense of density, distorting the figure of the viewer until they are no longer visible, merging them with the surrounding space and with the installations themselves. In this way the viewer and their surroundings become an active participant in the artwork, central to its conceptualisation.
